Here is a list of independent candidates who will appear on the November 2012 ballot for South Carolina legislature. At least 34 candidates will appear, with a possibility that up to four more will also qualify. Typically, there are zero or one independent candidates on the ballot for South Carolina legislature, because the petition is so difficult.
The reason there are so many this year is that many of these same candidates tried to run in the June 2012 Democratic or Republican primaries, but were eliminated from primary ballots. Many candidates did not know that the law required them to file a campaign finance document in March, both electronically and via paper.
